Uncle Bud was like another grandpa to my girls, and all of the other children in the neighborhood. Uncle Bud's and Aunt Linda's was the place to be! They had awesome barbecues and hosted many of the children's birthday parties and random pool parties. There was a fridge full of drinks that they knew that the children loved, and the bar fridge was always stocked for us grownups. The children felt loved and safe with Uncle Bud. Bud was a great friend to everyone. He, along with my dad and Herb, were known as the Beechfern Regulars, and they woukd hang out on Bud's driveway, drinking beer and talking about everything. Bud was always there for me if I needed a ride, needed my girls to be taken to or picked up from school, and a few times when I was stranded-one time, he showed up with two big jugs of gas, and of course wouldn't take any money for it! I know he did that for anyone else who needed him. To Linda and all of his family-and his extended family , including Pete and Stefan, and Mark and Kassidy-I am so sorry. But he will never really be gone.
I love you all.

There are way to many memories to share, he helped my dad raise me since I was 2 by being my non blood Uncle- he babysat me, took care of me while I was sick, taught me to swim, let me throw all my pool parties at his house! He made the best girl cheese and boy cheese in the world, always was at the school or bus stop to pick up all the kids and took us home to swim , do homework and just have the best life ever! He taught us that hate was such an ugly word even when it came to food he would always say well did you try it and most of the time the answer was no! :) he gave the best hugs, always said he was proud of me and I will never not have a memory that didn’t involve him!

My memories of Mr. Goble are all car related and their home on Wonder Lane. I clearly remember riding my 10 speed Schwinn around Ortega Hills. Many a day I would see Mr. Goble outside or in the carport. We would smile and wave and I often stopped for a quick chat. I remember the 1967 Chevrolet Impala and the Yellow Bug.
I also remember being in my front yard and seeing Mr M Goble coming home from work, the yellow bug coming down the street, smiling and waving as he went by. I remember when the yellow bug became Christy's yellow bug. I learned to drive a manual transmission in their yellow bug...thanks to Christy.
My love and condolences to all of the family.

We will miss you Bud. You were a warm & generous man & fun to be around. We will always remember your bar & grill out by the pool & how your garage door was always open for anyone to stop in for a beer, conversation & lots of laughs. Linda, that garage door has sadly closed leaving lots of memories for you to remember & cherish. Our prayers are with you & your family. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’”
